- Varsity is for the top players, regardless of grade-level.
- JV is for freshmen and sophomores to develop their skills and capabilities. (Note: The JV team is dependent upon having enough girls to field this team.)

The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism. Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff.
